Let’s be frank, these days music videos are soft-core porn. And for the record, I only watch MTV for the music. I’m not entirely ranting here. It is just that I find all the thrusting and jiggling a little bizarre given the oft nonsensical lyrics.
Maybe I am irritated since I have suffered through countless Cameron Diaz and Carmen Electra movies for a lot less sex appeal? In a two-minute music video there is rarely enough clothes to outfit the Swedish army (there are only three members and all of them are privates – hey, where is your mind? It is the music videos I tell you.)
The Temper Trap video for “Love Lost” reminds me of stomping in puddles after a nice rain. Ah, to be a kid again! I especially like the chubby kid, who couldn’t hit a puddle if it were right in front of him (I am being literal here). I honestly don’t know whether the video is strange, or if it is awesome. Maybe it is a little bit of both. Enjoy, and purify your mind.
